Prima Games is here to show you how to get and use the Ancient Bark in Valheim, stick around and you will be surprised by what you can craft with Ancient Bark.

How to Farm Ancient Bark in Valheim

Ancient Bark drops by chopping down Ancient Trees in the Swamp biome. Now, Ancient Trees are very tough to cut down, and you need a Bronze Axe (or a higher-tier Axe) in order to proceed.

Bronze Axe is made at the Forge, by using the following materials:

  • 8x Wood
  • 8x Bronze
  • 2x Leather Scraps

You obtain Bronze at this stage of the game by combining 2x Copper and 1x Tin at the Forge.

The alternative to chopping down Ancient Trees is to get in the crypts within Swamp, which oftentimes hold Ancient Bark in some of the chests that are randomly scattered throughout the crypt.
